I don't know much about CVSup, but I was under the impression it was
a rsync-like (sup) mechanism that works directly out of CVS? So it
doesn't give you a local repository to check stuff in to, just a local
copy of the repository (or a local copy of the repository checked out)
that's more or less read-only.
